, right? eric cantor, you are incorrect. next up, true or false, the city of detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, detroit's emergency manager, he was never elected to his position, he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the governor makes. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a dozen candidates will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figure as mayor. finally, speaking of mayoral elections, is it true or false

. >> bill: just about a minute left. can i ask you one final question, any hope for detroit? >> well, there is going to be hope because look, after you go hit the bottom, you start moving up again. the one thing i'm concerned about is that the pensions of all of these detroit retirees whose average pension is $19,000 a year which doesn't get you very far, is protected. and fortunately, in the constitution of michigan, pension protection is written in there quite plainly. and the rerepublican of the state bill shooty said those pensions cannot be affected. this is a fallout of the wild speculation and wall street, a gambling that has gone on and now they're asking all of us to pay the price. i don't think retirees -- in any place, there are other municipalities that aren't in such great shape. we want to protect those pensions and then start re-organizing. we have an emergency manager and he's a bankruptcy lawyerer. if you're not paranoid, then you won't feel badly about that. but i was worried about that from the beginning. and what did he do during negotiations? he turned around and

the detroit tigers, and others saying here's what we should add to baseball's arsenal -- the right at the team's discretion to void a long-term contract if a player is found, and after he gets due process and goes through appeals, so it's a fair process, if the player is found to have used peds, the team has the right to void the long-term contract. in the case of ryan braun, for example, he loses $3 million. that's a lot of money. but there's still about $100 million left on the contract. if you put in that clause, that you could void a deal, that's a tremendous disincentive. >> bob costas of nbc sports, thank you so much. what an important time with the suspension of alex rodriguez coming down to tomorrow according to your reporting from nbc sports. bob, thank you as always. >>> andrea mitchell, you're such a big sports fan. my own son said to me if one of his players he really likes a lot is caught up in this, he's going to throw away his jersey. this really matters in terms of the future of the game. >> baseball is america. baseball to me is essential sport. and the fact that it has been s
